White River Marsh State Wildlife Area

12,000 acres of lowland forest, oak savanna, grasslands and sedge meadow await you at this large property. The White and Fox Rivers flow through the landscape providing ample water to keep the marshes and lowlands hydrated. Two canoe launch sites access the Fox River where you’ll find herons, bitterns and other wading birds. Wild Turkeys hunt for insects and nuts in the oak savanna while Bobolinks, Savannah Sparrows and Sedge Wrens are found in the grasslands and sedge meadows. Watch for Bald Eagles, Broad-winged Hawks and Turkey Vultures as they hunt over the meadows. Badgers, woodchucks, red fox and coyotes are common here.
